Archaia Recreates the Flip Test For its Comics Online [Video]


The problem with the direction that print retail has taken in the last few years -- with so much material being purchased online, and with so many direct market stores bagging and boarding books before putting them on the racks -- is that the idea of just picking up a book and flipping through it to see what it looks like seems a thing of the past...

‘Cow Boy’ By Nate Cosby And Chris Eliopoulos: More Than Cute [Review]


Just take a glance at Cow Boy, Archaia's new hardcover graphic novel from writer Nate Cosby and artist Chris Eliopoulos, and you might quickly write it off as "cute." And, to be fair, an all ages story about a 10-year-old boy with what may or may not be a real gun made up to look like a toy horse hunting bounties in the old West is cute...

‘I’m Not A Plastic Bag': The Touching Journey of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch


On sale now from Archaia is I'm Not A Plastic Bag, a truly remarkable graphic novel by Rachel Hope Allison that tells a fantastical yet extremely poignant story about the environment. The book, which features almost no text, imagines the Great Pacific Garbage Patch -- the horrifyingly huge gyre of plastic and chemical debris that floats disgustingly in the Pacific Ocean -- as an endearingly anthropomorphic character adrift and alone in a world beyond its control...

Archaia’s ‘Dark Crystal: Creation Myths’ is a Proper Prequel on an Epic Scale [Preview]


On sale this week from Archaia is The Dark Crystal: Creation Myths, the first of a three-volume prequel to the events of the cult classic Jim Henson film. Devised by Brian Froud, the conceptual designer behind the original movie, Archaia's Dark Crystal book is not just an unusually handsome and lavishly illustrated graphic novel (even by Archaia's typically high production standards), it's also in my view one of the best attempts at any kind of prequel story I can remember...
